I for one like the taste of bluefish, however, I have yet to catch one the past couple of years. I'm heading out of Old Road Bay Sun. and Mon. to catch some. So where do I go?
What bait should I use? Thanks men, Bob

Where is that ?
If you want to catch Blues- cut Spot on a #4 or #2 long shank hook will get you plenty :thumbup:. Any small shiny lure about 2-3 inches long (Tony #15/#17) will catch them as well.

Set up to catch Rockfish should have plenty of blues

I have heard reports of rock and blues in the rivers.

I have been having good luck on cut previously frozen spot. I have been seeing blues in 25-35 feet of water, with them breaking occassionally.

Stingsilvers with a feather are my lure of choice. When I throw BKD's at them, all I get back is a chewed up BKD. I am not into throwing money away. I keep the BKDs in the bag until the blues vacate in a couple a weeks and I am throwing lures at rockfish only.

I second what joemassi said ... a stingsilver with a feather will do it. Add a dropper fly and you might catch two at a time. :yes:

Not sure how they are up on the Patapsco but they are thick by the baybridge.

Bob, swing around the point to the right out of ORB along brewerton channel heading torwards the key bridge. Troll inline 4-6oz, 30ft leaders with any mid-size spoon or hose.

Baltimore light/Podickery in 25-35 feet has Blues if that is not too far south for you.

I've used top water lures before for smallmouths but never had luck jigging, never had anyone show me the ropes. I bought a stingsilver with feather before going out Friday and tried it at Gum while live lining. I caught a couple blues with the LL spot and fed a few more but no bites on the jig. Any tips, any online videos somewhere to help out a novice?
